Did Bessie smith have a drinking problem?
Her career came to a hault because of her drinking problem. She started drinking when she was a teen.
When she turned 18, Smith began to sing in blues shows. She performed in vaudeville shows and along with famed singer Ma Rainey.By the way I am from Bessie Smiths country you know.I don't know that much about Bessie smith because i am not from Bessie smiths country.One day she sang on the street and someone notice her so it make my friend Bessie smith to become interest in singing.Bessie Smith died when she was…
Not at all. The name "Smith" is very common, and Bessie lived in an entirely different era from Will-- she was performing in the 1910s, 1920s, and 1930s, where Will is from the modern era of the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s. That said, I would be shocked in Will Smith had never heard of Bessie, who was an internationally known and admired blues singer.
Bessie Smith was a phenomenal singer and she enjoyed milkshakes and bacon between songs. **************** Oh give me a break! LOL. She was indeed a phenomenal singer as well as dancer, comedian, etc. She was "strictly show biz" as her niece stated. There are many interesting, hysterically funny, bawdy facts about Bessie Smith. Read Chris Albertson's book, "Bessie" or get the CD of her nieces interviews. Very funny stuff.
